Default Need 5 star torx for key cyl. housing removal

2006 PT, Touring Edition, non Turbo, stock, 202k miles.
Thanks to all the info I was able to get on this site I was able to identify an intermittent starting problem, then turned into a wont start problem, as a bad ignition switch actuator pin. Although dealer does not sell the pin for the 2006 PT it appears the Jeep pin will work. Anyway my problem is removing the key cylinder housing. on the 2006 model there are two 5 star torx type screws that hold the housing in place. I am having trouble locating this tool and would like any direction I can get on obtaining the needed tool.

Thanks in advance for any help.

BTW...I tried O'Riely's, Auto Zone, Harbor Freight, going to Sears today to try.
Napa say's they can order a set of them from Carlyle but it would be expensive (did not get exact cost). Dealer does not sell.

This is what is stated in the Service Manual:

"1. Using Tamper-Proof TorxT Plus (five point) 30 bit,
remove the two screws (1) fastening the lock cylinder
housing (2) to the column."

Here's the 5 point set:

Here's the Craftsman set I have from Sears. Plus a set of bits with more sizes.

If the OP will simply "google" ------ Sears store torx 5-point #30 availability ------ He will find them at Sears, Walmart, etc., etc., etc.
